Olwyn discovered Yoga in 1997 the first class she ever took was a Rocket Yoga class at It’s Yoga in San Francisco with Larry Schultz they were still calling the class Ashtanga Vinyasa at the time. Although finding herself in an advanced class meant falling over even in basic standing poses she knew she had found what she was looking for.
Years of traveling the world followed; finding the best classes she could, she finally settled on a teacher training in India in 2004. The opportunity to live for a month in an Ashram was too tempting and so worthwhile. Moving on from there she continued her studies in New York with Shiva Rea, more at Jivamukti, back to India again and again and continued to emerge herself in many styles from Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Shadow, Anusara until now 20+ years later offering a style that brings out the best in all she has learnt. She still sees herself and probably always will as a student first. The seat of the teacher is not something she ever does or ever will take for granted.
Classes are always strong but safe encouraging students to bring out the best of themselves.

Yoga for Runners
More than just a stretch...
Combining a yoga practice along with your running does so much more than merely stretch out those muscles that get tighter as we enthusiastically pound the pavement.
Combing the stretching and releasing of those muscles along with a pranayama (breathing) practice and meditation can really help give you the focus and stamina to move to the next level.
Always taught with care and some sound advice on injury prevention and recovery this 2 hour workshop will leave you with the tools you require to either adapt your current yoga practice or begin a new one suited to your running needs.
